How to Get a Trendy '70s Look For Halloween

It's a Cult Movie Halloween: Foxy Brown

During Spring fashion week, beauty trends reminiscent of the '70s pounded the runway. Try centering this trend on your Halloween costume and go as a crime-fighting, no-nonsense heroine like blaxploitation queen Pam Grier. Blaxploitation, a genre of films that featured mainly black actors, emerged in the '70s and incorporated elements like crime and martial arts. Taking style cues from Grier as title character Foxy Brown, this powerful yet sexy look is achievable with big false lashes, winged eyeliner, nude lips, and a peachy bronzed blush. If you already sport a beautiful natural afro, you are halfway there. Blow out your hair to the max and finish the look with gold hoop earrings, a jumpsuit, and a sassy tough-girl attitude! If you have a relaxer or short hair, get a wig and fake it 'til you're Foxy.
